Introduce your favorite young person to international travel with this family adventure in the ancient Mediterranean. Mythology comes alive on this 10-night cruise with stops in Greece, Turkey and Italy. Climb the Acropolis. Ride a donkey to Santorini’s volcano. Travel to Olympia and participate in your own Olympic games. Explore the ruins of Pompeii.  Swim in the Mediterranean. Your home is the 50-guest yacht, Arethusa, whose small size allows it to access in out-of-the-way ports and harbors.

Come join me behind-the-scenes at the Athenian Agora, visit one of the seven wonders of the ancient world at Ephesos, tour the labyrinth of the Minotaur, and see where the Olympic Games began.”--Barbara Tsakirgis, associate professor of classics and history of art
